Question Almost Crashed!

Hey guys. I have some issues with my rig and I decided to replace my motherboard with another one and test it. The replacement mobo is exactly the same model. However I have built a raid strip array and have some data on the 2 hdd's. I will change the mobo but I have to know how can I make not to loose the array nor any of my data ! Thanks a lot for your input.

Chris

Should work fine if the mobo and controller is exactly the same.

How do you make sure you don't lose data? Make regular backups!

I just saved on a couple of dvd's what was important ! I was thinking about how the raid isn't built in the new raid bios !

Usually raid controllers tag disks by writing to the first sector (or last sector) what disk they are and what the array configuration is. I definately know of hardware RAID adapters that do that - swap the disks around and they will happily reconfigure themselves so that the RAID array continues working.

However, it's always a good idea to have a backup!

Today the system crashed. Yesterday I just back up my data. Didn't had time to switch the mobo's. I started my rig this morning to watch the news. Then I shut it down and left for work. After few hours my wife started the rig and it was stuck at the raid bios. I had to go home clr cmos and set up the bios again. This time after initializing the bios/raidbios/dmi the rig would restart itself. What the hell could be wrong? Could this be a PSU failure? The raid is healthy ! Thanks for your help !

Can you try a different PSU? Otherwise the board might iffy maybe a new BIOS flash will cure it? Who knows!

Tonight I'll take one PSU with me and I'll try to boot.
/If no go then replace mobo.
If no go then open window.
If window opened wide then throw PC out
End/
